Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen - Makrolon, Medium is rated 4.9259 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressions after a year and a half This pen is a very sturdy workhorse pen with a smooth and springy nib. It has a reassuring hefty feel when loaded with ink. The piston filler is smooth too and seamlessly integrates with the body making the knob unapparent. The brushed steel section will keep your fingers there even if you sweat, thus avoiding any slippage. People have complained about the two little fins that prod out and keep the cap in place, but I've never seen it as a big deal since they're truly unobtrusive unless you grip that area with a ridiculous amount of preassure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from form and function The Lamy 2000 is a classic of modern design. Its graceful lines do not compromise its flawless function. The pen feels substantial in the hand but remains easy to hold/use for long periods of time. The built-in filling mechanism works well and holds a large amount of ink. The nib is buttery-smooth and lays down more of a wet, broad line. What I like most about it is the understatement. This pen represents a quiet elegance that perfectly suits a wide variety of social settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Icon This pen has haunted me ever since I thought beyond my Pelikano school pen. Recently my wife ordered an EF L2k for my not-so-soon upcoming birthday on this site, but since I don't have it yet, I will comment on my so far favorite of all fountain pens - the Lamy 2000 in medium. This pen is rugged, with a glassy smooth nib, big ink capacity and, within the limitations of a piston filler (ink burps when it heats up), flawless. The design is a discreet rebellion against gaudiness (are you listening, MB?) One of the best aspects of the pen is revealed only after you've had and used it for a few years: its wabi-sabi way of aging gracefully - it never looks scuffed or scratched like highly polished pens, but develops a shinier patina, like the hardwood handle of a well used tool, becoming more beautiful all the time. And I believe its designer, Gerd A. Muller, planned that in. An Icon. It will age with you, and gently remind you of all the places you've been together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first gold nib I'm pretty new to the FP world, but I caught the fever and just surpassed the ten-pen mark (what's a guy to do with dozens of ink samples and too few pens?!) After much deliberation (based on info from Brian's reviews), I decided on the Lamy 2000 as my first pen with a gold nib. About a month later, I got an orange Pilot Custom 74, both M gold nibs. I really like both pens, and as I rotate through my pen collection, I always enjoy the luxurious writing experience with either of these pens. I am posting this review in the Lamy 2000 section because, in my opinion, it edges out the Pilot because of the overall writing experience. Wet, springy, and oh so smooth. I would not have guessed that I was such a smooth-a-holic, but that is what impresses me the most about this pen. While the two pens have drastically different designs, I like them both. The retro-futuristic design of the Lamy is neat, while the Pilot exudes quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from if it doesn't write right, send it to Lamy I really wanted to like this pen but it had flow problems. Lamy will stand behind their products though and they will make it right if you send it to them. It's just irritating to have to send a brand new pen in. But Lamy will fix it no questions asked. It should have a very generous flow even with the driest inks and should be very very smooth. If any of this isn't true send it in. The nibs run a little wider than normal, so if you like M then get an F, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lamy 2000 Medium Nib This is a truly smooth writing pen. Previously for quality/quantity writing" I used a Mountblanc 149 90th anniversary (received as a gift) or a Mountblanc 1966 Writers Edition (Dumas) purchased in Paris in 1966. All three nibs are listed as medium. The Lamy 2000 is slightly smoother writing, and puts down a very consistent ink flow. I think it will be a while before I can rank the pens 1-2-3, but the price advantage of the Lamy would be very difficult to overcome. I would recommend the Lamy 2000 for both every day and "special" writing. Very nice, quality pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pen! Smooth nib and sleek design I love this pen! It has a nice design and it writes very well. The nib may take a little getting used to at first, but after a few days I was able to write with it without noticing any scratches. Ink flow is very nice and it is fairly easy to clean. The only think that I've noticed is it can start to get a bit hard on your hand when you are cleaning the pen from screwing the piston in and out over and over again. However, it is not that bad of a problem and I only notice it when I am cleaning with particularly harsh inks for long periods of time. I would recommend this to both long time fountain pen users, but also people that are looking for an intermediate level pen with a gold nib.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pen, unexpected nib... I bought this pen last week and was super excited with the purchase, having read the very positive reviews on this particular model. Well, to my surprise, the medium size of the nib was more a broad nib than a medium -- way broader than my Safari pen. I wish I had chosen a fine or extra-fine. Except for that particular aspect and my disappointment at the nib variation that I certainly didn't expect to have to deal with on a pen that is on the pricier side, I must say that the Lamy 2000 is a very aesthetic pen and a pleasure to write with. I'll have to save to give the EF or Fine a shot sometime!
